Canadian RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere Takes Championship Top Spot for Second Year!

Myers would like to congratulate Canadian RedBull Crashed Ice skater Jacqueline Legere, who Myers Orléans Chev Buick GMC, Myers Orléans Nissan, and Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC teamed up to sponsor, on her second RedBull Crashed Ice Championship title!

  

Legere took on many other skaters from all over the world throughout the 2016/2017 RedBull Crashed Ice circuit, with the finals taking place in Ottawa along the Rideau Canal between the Chateau Laurier hotel and Parliament Hill. Legere went into the finals with an impressive season behind her and didn't disappoint the fans in the crowd as she fought to keep her Championship title for the second year.

Three Myers Dealerships Team Up to Sponsor RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere for 2016/2017 season!

Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC, Myers Orléans Chev Buick GMC, and Myers Orléans Nissan have teamed up to sponsor Canadian RedBull Crashed Ice Skater Jacqueline Legere as she defends her 2016 Champion title.

The RedBull Crashed Ice Championship has brought a great deal of attention to the world, and entertainment, of ice cross downhill - the fastest sport on skates where skaters race down a massive ice track filled with drops, hairpin turns, and gaps at speeds of more than 50 km/h. World Championship points are up for grabs at each of the stops and the competitor who skates through the season with the most points accumulated after the races is crowned World Champion.

 

Legere has been doing well this season, with appearances on the podium in Marseille, France where she placed 1st, and in Jyväskylä-Laajis, Finland when she placed 3rd. Cheer on the St. George, Ontario native while she rocks the Myers logo at the RedBull Crashed Ice Finals in Ottawa March 3rd and 4th. The event will take place along the Rideau Canal and is free. Tickets are available for purchase for those wishing to upgrade their RedBull Crashed Ice experience with Ice Club VIP Tickets. For full event details, visit the website here.

The Myers Automotive ACE Unit

The new Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit at the Queensway Carleton Hospital recently celebrated the official opening and is preparing to start taking patients soon. As the Myers Automotive Group donated $1 million towards the ACE unit, a few members from the Myers group and Mews family, including Mr. Hank Mews and son Mr. Robert Mews (Executive VP of The Myers Automotive Group)  were on hand at the grand opening ceremony which was timed to a visit from Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and Infrastructure Minister and local MPP, Bob Chiarelli.

 

The Mews family and the Myers Automotive Group have always felt it is important to give back to the Ottawa-area community and are happy to have made this contribution to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, where Mr. Hank Mews has previously sat on the hospital board. We look forward to seeing how this new unit helps the Ottawa-area community members in need of this specialised care.

J.D Power 2016 U.S Vehicle Dependability Study

  

J.D. Power has released the results of it's 2016 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study and Chevrolet has a lot to celebrate.
The 2016 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study is based on responses from 33,560 original owners of 2013 model-year vehicles after three years of ownership. The study examines any problems experienced during the past 12 months by the original owners. Overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles, with a lower score reflecting higher quality. 177 specific problem symptoms grouped into eight major vehicle categories are covered by the study, which is now in its 27th year.
Of the 32 brands that were tracked, Chevrolet earned the 6th spot and 4 of 8 category wins.
  • The Chevrolet Malibu placed first in the Midsize Car category.
  • The Chevrolet Camaro placed first in the Midsize Sporty Car category.
  • The Chevrolet Equinox placed first in the Compact SUV category.
  • The Chevrolet Silverado HD placed first in the Large Heavy Duty Pickup category.
These results reinforce how truly committed Chevrolet is to building quality vehicles with the technology, performance, and design that customers want.

Top of Their Class!

With the increasingly higher technical demands of automotive repairs and maintenance, highly skilled service technicians are a vital asset for automotive dealers.
In 1990, Algonquin College provided such a program, the ASEP program (Automotive Service Education Program) with the objective of providing full automotive technical training for Apprentices. Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC was one of the founding dealers in Ottawa supporting the program for the last 25 years.
Randy Scott, GM ASEP Coordinator at Algonquin College stated that, "The Myers Automotive Group not only supplies regular students for the program, they have been instrumental in the direction of the program with a representative on the ASEP Advisory Committee. The current building we occupy was the result of our local GM dealers, Algonquin College, GM of Canada and the Ministry of Training Colleges & Universities all working together. Supplies such as engines and miscellaneous parts have also been directed to our school as on-going critical support by the Myers group."
Over the years, the strong partnership with dealers such as Myers has allowed the Algonquin ASEP department to graduate many of the highest academic achievers in the area.
During the most recent graduation in November, Danick Bourdeau of Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC was the recipient of the highest award possible for his achievements. The Myers group also had two other graduates, Tyler Tagano of Myers Kanata Chev Buick GMC and Cory Wilson of Myers Cadillac Chev Buick GMC.
Myers is proud to have been a strong partner in this vital program. In return we have been instrumental in providing the best trained people in the industry. This has been the Myers commitment…providing the best in convenient, friendly, and professional service along with superior technical know-how to our customers.
Congratulations to our Myers graduates! We're proud of you!

J.D. Power Initial Quality Study

J.D. Power recently put out its Initial Quality study showing the top recognized brands in the automotive industry this year. The survey that was conducted asked 84,000 people any problems they may have encountered during the first 90 days of owning or leasing their new vehicle. As one of the highest rated vehicles compared to industry standard, Hyundai ranked as 4th overall, behind only Porshe, Jaguar and Kia. 
"This is a clear shift in the quality landscape," said Renee Stephens, vice president of U.S. automotive quality at J.D. Power. "For so long, Japanese brands have been viewed by many as the gold standard in vehicle quality. While the Japanese automakers continue to make improvements, we're seeing other brands -- most notably Korean makes -- accelerating the rate of improvement."
As far as individual models go, General Motors Chevrolet vehicles tie with three other manufacturers, Hyundai, Volkswagen and Nissan as high ranked in overall satisfaction according to the survey results. Top placing models rankings include:
